Wireless Kill Switch

Publish date:

Autotether’s marine wireless system is built to instantly cut the outboard engine when the operator falls overboard or is separated from the boat by more than 150 feet. The host unit replaces the engine’s red safety lanyard, and a compact remote sensor that the operator wears will kill the engine if he or she falls overboard. The unit is compatible with all major outboard brands. As many as three sensors can be added to sound an alarm if a guest falls overboard. Price: $235. Additional sensors are $95 each.
